Jane's Poem for Today!!

Jane is in Pasadena, staying at the Ritz Carlton, an old estate-hotel that has been renovated, and sounds wonderful with vast grounds and Japanese gardens. Jane did Tai Chi last night out on the grass.    We all must go there one day.  Her poem for today, a light, as usual,  for the stars.

In the high room of an old hotel, I opened the window to the night.

A crescent moon dangled from a palm tree.

From the verandah below, laughter and talk drifted up.

Like childhood, I fell asleep to the voices of grownups.

And awakened to birdsong.

It is dawn again.

Spring again.

How patiently my heart beats.
